The 1903 World Series was the first ever Major League Baseball championship series. It was a best-of-nine series between the Boston Pilgrims of the American League and the Pittsburgh Pirates of the National League. The Pirates won the series five games to three, with one tie game. The Pirates were led by their Hall of Fame outfield of Honus Wagner, Fred Clarke, and Tommy Leach, who combined for 18 hits, 11 runs, and 11 RBIs in the series. The Pilgrims were led by Cy Young, who pitched three complete games and won two games. The Pirates won the deciding Game 8 by a score of 8–0, with Deacon Phillippe pitching a shutout. The series is remembered for the first World Series home run, hit by Pirate left fielder Jimmy Sebring in Game 1.
